The problem is that things like cellphones are "consumed" a lot faster than computers are, so while they may retain their value (and that's bound to change sooner rather than later), their "value" is very little when you want to use it with the latest version of iOS (for example) or something else..

So while the 3G is a good smartphone to get your feet wet with, as you've already found out you can't readily use the latest versions of iOS or apps because they don't support the older phones anymore. Some of these requirements are based on hardware capabilities (as far iOS is concerned), but when it comes to apps..it's mainly due to the lack of availability on the developers part to be able to test their apps on the older devices..so they just opt to support (and test) on the newer devices..

Either way..enjoy your iPhone 3G..
